Shopping Cart

Windward's online POS system features an e-cart that’s efficient, secure and user-friendly. It allows your website visitors to easily purchase items in a way that’s intuitive and hassle-free. New customers can set up their own accounts using an easy-to-fill-in form with customer contact, billing and login information.

Designed with Business Owners in Mind

Our online POS system is designed for business owners that are looking to grow with technology. Our entire system is designed to be user-friendly, and it can be set up quickly and efficiently. With one-click purchase authorization, you can quickly approve sales and the corresponding transactions are processed in real-time for your record keeping.

Authorizing Credit Card Orders

Credit card transactions require one-click authorization, and after that they’re automatically submitted to the credit card company. If the credit card transaction is approved:

  • An e-mail is automatically sent to the client advising them that their order has been processed
  • The order inventory items are automatically removed from stock
  • A pick list is automatically printed for shipping
  • All of the accounting related entries are automatically made

If the credit card transaction is rejected, the administrator has the option of resubmitting the transaction with the click of a button, or of letting the system automatically notify the customer by e-mail that their credit card did not clear. The choice is yours.

It's like magic... inventory records in Winward System Five automatically keep your website product pages up-to-date<br>


Windward online POS system integrates seamlessly with Windward System Five to ensure that the information that is displayed on your website is current and accurate. The system provides real-time inventory control, customer relationship management and backend accounting for both your online and offline business.

Dynamically Generated Stock Management Pages

One of the key aspects of Windward E-Commerce inventory management is its ability to display items in a dynamically generated format. This means that the content of webpages is based on the information uploaded directly from you’re your System Five records.

By using dynamically generated webpages your website will always be in sync with your System Five records, reducing errors and improving accuracy. In addition, because website pages are dynamically generated, there’s little need for you to make manual changes to your website inventory.

How Dynamic Stock Pages Work

Let’s say a business sells apparel online and there’s a subcategory for children’s raincoats. The description of one coat in particular lists it as being waterproof with a detachable hood. However, the vendor realizes there’s an inaccuracy in the description because the coat is, in fact, only water resistant and the hood isn’t detachable.

Upon receiving notification of this error, a clerk can go into Windward System Five, make the corresponding changes and upload them into Windward We-Commerce. Although this could have been left for the automatic upload later in the day, it was determined that the change was significant and had to be remedied immediately.

In other words, Windward’s online POS system automatically displays uploaded changes to an item, without having to duplicate the change on the website. This saves you time and ensures your online and offline inventories are accurate and in sync.
